Timber is a material unlike any other with its unrivalled uniqueness, beauty and touch-ability.
The use of timber in the bathroom brings visual warmth and luxury to a traditionally stark space made up of tiles, glass, mirror, stone and concrete.
Timber vanities have exploded in popularity over the last couple of years with many an appearance on interior decoration TV shows such and the pages of home magazines.
The timeless nature of timber ensures that a timber vanity will always be on trend and is easily malleable to any design aesthetic.
Timber naturally comes in a variety of tones from the ash blonde of American oak to the dark chocolate of walnut, the flowing sap lines of recycled messmate to the Scandinavian minimalism of Australian chestnut. There is a timber that will suit every aesthetic, style and palette. Recycled or reclaimed timbers are a lovely option for those who love more character in their timber, such as nail and bolt holes, and a high level of natural feature with the added benefit of reducing your environmental impact.
With a quality solid timber vanity, any home is instantly more valuable in comparison to the use of veneer, melamine or laminate alternatives simply because the timber holds its value.
Over time the other materials, once scratched, stained or water damaged, will have to be replaced.
A timber vanity with a finish that can be renovated, however, is easily fixable and even gets more beautiful with age as a patina develops.
A custom piece ensures that a vanity design is perfect both aesthetically and functionally for your home.
We work together with you to create a piece that suits your storage needs, style as well as the dimensions for your space.
